Actor Sanjay Dutt revealed that he has no intention to retire from the industry. He hopes to work till his last breath as he loves acting.
The year 2020 was difficult for actor Sanjay Dutt. It was not just the pandemic, but the actor was also diagnosed with lung cancer while shooting KGF: Chapter 2. But he came out with flying colours and successfully defeated the disease. Since then, there’s no looking back for this heartthrob.
When asked what motivated to resume to work, he said, “I am an actor and I love what I do. I will keep active till my last breath and would love to do films. I love the characters that I play and the body of work that I have done. I feel proud to be a part of the Indian film industry.”
Sanjay will play Adheera in KGF: Chapter 2. He said that it was the larger-than-life character and the look that urged him to play Adheera.
“Adheera is a great character. When I heard about my character, mei hil gaya. I have seen KGF Part 1 and Yash’s role. I was thrilled that the heroism that I showcased in the 90s has come back. I loved the character and look that has been given to Adheera. I am lucky to play a negative character,” he shared.
As part of his wardrobe, Sanjay has don a heavy armour. But despite its weight, he said, he was extremely comfortable to shoot the scenes. “I don't know if it weighed 25 kgs or 2 kgs, but the armour was heavy. We had to shoot in the harsh sun and dust. So it was sweaty and had leather. Yet, it wasn’t difficult to wear the armour because I loved what I do,” he added.
KGF: Chapter 2 is directed by Prashanth Neel. Besides Sanjay, the film stars Yash, Raveena Tandon, Srinidhi Shetty and Prakash Raj. The second instalment of the two-part series will release on April 14 in Kannada, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
